China has an unusual way of punishing those that have committed a traffic offence – totally humiliating them!

The offenders are made to stand on the corner of a road, holding a white flag with red characters. They must stand there for the whole day waving the flag at passing traffic.

This one day sentence of embarrassment I can only presume is very boring, but it does allow for the offender to reflect on their behaviour and possibly deter others.

It is also a way of freeing up valuable resources for those that commit the more serious crimes.
